Destined to illuminate even the darkest of days thanks to its powerful beauty, it makes perfect sense that the Arctic Light collection originates from one of the most pristine and breath-taking places in the world. Born in Canada's Northwest Territories, the awe-inspiring wonder of untamed wilderness and waters watch over diamonds that were formed here deep in the earth more than a billion years ago.

Crisp, clean and coveted, these ethereal diamonds are an exquisite ode to the pure joy of love. Radiating incredible brilliance and light that allows for more reflection and luminosity, Arctic Light is the only colourless Canadian diamond collection available on the High Street today.

Ethically sourced exquisiteness

Not only is Arctic Light our top tier offering in bridal jewellery, but it also highlights Ernest Jones’ commitment to ethical sourcing.

Each stone used in the Arctic Light collection is responsibly sourced and 100% traceable from the mine to the final impeccable and polished product. Furthermore, these stunning diamonds are sustainable to the environment and indigenous population, and completely natural and free of treatments, reiterating just how pure and precious they are in every way.

A contemporary take on classic style

Serving as a testament to Ernest Jones’ ability to reinvent, as well as the brand’s creative capabilities, the Arctic Light collection provides a contemporary interpretation of the classic solitaire ring.

While the colourless diamond takes centre stage – imagined in fancy cuts such as princess and emerald – these engagement rings are available in prestigious platinum or yellow gold that exude an incomparable transcendence.

Only the best will do

Only exceptional quality diamonds with a minimum colour F – one of the highest gradings of colour found in diamonds – are sourced for Arctic Light.

Each ring is accompanied by a CanadaMark TM certificate for the centre stone and each diamond is double certified, sold with an IGI certificate for Independent certification of the diamond's 4Cs.

The 4Cs are the four prime factors used to value a diamond. The more flawless a diamond is, the higher its value and desirability. A classic white diamond’s worth is based on:


Considered to be the most important of the 4Cs, cut determines how much appeal the stone has. Cut refers to the way a rough stone is transformed into the final polished diamond by an experienced cutter with facets cut into the stone to enhance the way it interacts with light to maximise the diamond's sparkle and brilliance.


The second and most important characteristic conversely refers to a diamond's lack of colour, with less colour resulting in a higher value, quality or grade. Colour ranges from D- colourless to Z- light yellow. With Arctic Light diamonds being completely colourless, this makes them all the more special.


This is all about imperfections or flaws which are often difficult to detect with the naked eye because they are so microscopic in size. The fewer visible inclusions and blemishes a diamond has, the better the clarity and the rarer and more valuable it is.


The measure of weight for a diamond is known as carat, this refers to the total physical weight of the stone rather than the size or shape. With the Arctic Light collection offering rings with diamonds ranging from 0.20ct to 1ct in total, whichever one you choose for, it is certain to make a long-lasting impression.

Love in its purest form

The light of your life deserves something as pure as them, and what better to gift to them than Arctic Light’s coveted, colourless Canadian diamonds as the ultimate symbol of your endless devotion? A bright and beautiful way to declare your commitment, a ring from the collection makes for a stunning choice of an engagement ring.

A post-pandemic world has emphasised the importance of just what our loved ones mean to us, and to be especially grateful for the precious moments you get to spend with your soulmate, your other half, your rock. There’s no better time or better way to show this, than asking the question that will make them the happiest person in the world, so make your proposal perfect with the pristine beauty of Arctic Light.
